Diabetes doesn’t happen overnight – a list of wrong lifestyle choices piles up with genetic and environmental factors gradually lead us to this. A steep increase in type 2 diabetes in children, adolescents and young people is noticed – all because of wrong lifestyle. Most of the time people with diabetes doesn’t show any symptoms or significantly mild symptoms. Later when the blood sugar level reaches 200-300 mg/dl, people start experiencing fatigue, unintentional weight loss, excessive thirst, increased urine frequency, constant hunger, slow healing wounds and frequent infections.
Higher levels of blood sugar in the blood stream can adversely affect the whole bodily functions including the nervous and blood circulation, cardiovascular function, kidney function and eyes.
What is Diabetes:
Diabetes is long standing health condition characterized by high levels of blood sugar which means our body is breaking down most of the food we eat into glucose which instead of getting used up is directly released into the blood.
Insulin is the hormone that maintains the level of blood sugar in our body which means a high level of blood sugar indicates that either our body is not producing sufficient insulin or the insulin produced doesn’t get used up properly.
Types Of Diabetes:
1) Type1 Diabetes or Diabetes Insipidus – The pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin which is genetically predisposed.
2) Type 2 Diabetes or Diabetes Melitus – The insulin produced doesn’t get used up properly, often resulting from bad life style choices.
3)Gestational Diabetes- Higher glucose levels during pregnancy which usually gets resolved after delivery.
4)Prediabetes- Condition where there is high levels of sugar in blood but not high enough to be type 2 diabetes.
Hba1c is the recommended criteria for the appropriate diagnosis of diabetes.
